    This probably wont receive general acceptance; however, I had 4 Cans of Dullcote ordered with M B Klein and after 5 days it is still awaiting fulfillment! As such, I cancelled the order and re-ordered the 4 Cans of Dullcote with Kit Kraft, they'll ship it first thing in the morning.

    Also ordered a few lengths of 1/4" x 1/4" Bass Wood Strips to using as form work for my street scene elevation along with another 4 bottles of Krystal Clear through Midwest Model Railroad, just to have on backup for the bottles I bought from Mike Fifer

    Lastly, have bought a few more sheets of Shingles from Rich to go with the Kits I also bought from him
    Cheers Tony

    I'd like to give a big thank you to all the post workers who are keeping things moving in there troubled times

    They dropped off these two goodies.

    First:

    Traction tyred drivers for my Mikado. Maybe it will be able to earn its keep now !

    Second:
    IMG_2017 (2).jpg
    Oh yes, won't you just feast your eyes on that beautiful paint job. Perfect, absolutely perfect, well perfect for me anyway as nobody else bid on it so I got it really cheap. The chassis runs like new and will be set aside for a future project. As for the body !!!!

    Now, back to writing stories.
    Thanks, Tom

    You must have ESP! He was completely shut down but on the 8th he posted on his Facebook group that he is re-opening for Curb-side pick-up. He is taking orders by phone or text. I should note that this is a part-time shop, usually only open 9 to 4 on weekends. I placed an order and he is looking for some stuff for me. Not the same as being able to browse the shop but it's a start.

    OK I lied . I just ordered another 8 lbs of woodland scenics lightweight Hydrocal and a few different colors and sizes of Talus . Dammit hydrocal is hard to find , and hard to find reasonable prices here in Canada . I went with the Woodland scenics so as to match my previous rock molds I made with their hydrocal , that way I'm assured they will all take the pigment color washes the same .

    Still need a Kato double track truss bridge ��
    Anyone got one they don't need ?

    Forgot to mention, I received my RSLaser (Rich) kits yesterday:

    Dakra's Dry Goods
    Roundtree Farm House
    Medford General Store and
    First Bank Building


    These get added to Rich's Zelda's Bed and Breakfast Kit

    The Bank came with lighting as well - impressive

    I am going to need to look at the instructions fairly closely before I begin any of them. Unlike the AMB Kits, these instructions are going to take some getting used to and I definitely do not want to mess these kits up.

    I'm hoping once I get one done, the rest will be easier to follow

    I have someone else do it. (These were more ebay purchases.) I can see if I can find the seller and ask them.

    @SimRacin14 That's the best way to do things, at least if they turn out so nice
    @wombat457 That Kit Kraft box looks a lot like someone ordered tons of flex track. I know it's not, just saying...

    Steve, I found a 50 lb bag of Hydrocal at a building supply store close to me. Maybe check in your area to see if they sell them.

    It cost me about $50
